Frankly, I'd think seriously about using a different log analysis package.
I don't know anything about openstats, but skimming the page you reference
shows several major problems:

1. The regex above, which is garbage.

2. They tell you to use <Limit GET POST> ... which is wrong and possibly a
security risk.

3. They tell you to use "HostNameLookups On" which is stupid, because it
will slow down your server and can easily be replaced by a post-processor.

4. Their site comes with a default administrative password enabled.

If you still want to use it, then to solve your immediate problem, just
use the simpler regex I mentioned in the last message.  It should work
